2574 CLCV-227-01 Drinking & Dining in Antiquity 1.00 SEM Risser, Martha TR: 10:50AM-12:05PM TBA HUM  
  Enrollment limited to 25 Waitlist available: N
  This course offers a history of banqueting in the ancient Mediterranean world, from communal feasts at religious festivals to the private banquets of the Greek symposium, and the Roman convivium. Using primary ancient sources (literary texts, artistic representations, and archaeological finds), we will examine the roles of dining and drinking in ancient societies and social ideologies. What, for instance, was the significance of food and drink offerings in tombs and images of banqueting in funerary art? Where did the custom of reclining to dine originate, and what social implications did it carry? And, of course, what kind of food and drink was consumed at these banquets?

2513 RELG-110-01 Introduction to Christianity 1.00 LEC Murray, Caleb TBA TBA HUM  
  Enrollment limited to 40 Waitlist available: N
  Also cross-referenced with CLASSCIVIL
  How is Jesus of Nazareth understood throughout Christian history: martyr, zealot, insurgent, Marxist, capitalist, emperor, social worker, general, or savior? How is Christianity connected to both colonialism and liberation movements, the Inquisition and Civil Rights, anti-Semitism and religious tolerance, witch-hunts and female leadership? This course will offer a broad introduction to the diverse traditions and identities of global Christianity through a range of sources: literary, historical, and philosophical texts, art and architecture, as well as ethnography and film. We consider the ways in which Christianity is both a religion of protest, revolt and liberation, as well as a religion of empire and conquest.
1442 RELG-212-01 New Testament 1.00 LEC Hornung, Gabriel MW: 1:15PM-2:30PM TBA HUM  
  Enrollment limited to 39 Waitlist available: N
  Also cross-referenced with CLASSICS
  An examination of the New Testament in the context of the first century C.E. to study the formation and themes of these early Christian writings. The course will stress the analysis of texts and discussion of their possible interpretations. How did the earliest writings about Jesus present him? Who was Paul? Is it more accurate to call him the founder of Christianity instead of Jesus? How do we understand Gospels that are not in the New Testament? We will attend to these and other social, political, and historical issues for studying the New Testament and Early Christianity.
